9:30 AM | Rocket launch now set for 5PM early Sunday evening and skies look favorable; Lyrid meteor shower peaks late tonight

Discussion

3rd time is a charm?? The rocket launch that has been scrubbed twice so far at NASA Wallops Island, Virginia should go on as planned at 5PM this early Sunday evening. Sky conditions look quite favorable for this scheduled launch time and for viewing conditions up and down the east coast. For more specifics on the launch refer to prior posts here at thesiweather.com. Real-time launch updates are available on the Wallops Island Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/NASAWFF/.

Also, the Lyrid meteor shower will peak late tonight and early Monday and skies should be clear, but it’ll be quite cold.
